Likely, these folks are all in the same family. If it is secret diplomacy/multis, it's the worst case of trying to hide it I've ever seen. =)
It looks like SonofaPrich and Prichinator are part of the same family, too. On David's wall, SonofaPrich left a message, and they have some games with each other.
Just take a look at jakob's games played. He plays a lot against other members of the Prichard group, in games only against each other and in games with other players: http://www.conquerclub.com/player.php?m ... chard&so=D
Take this game: Game 13994606
2014-02-10 11:22:46 - jakobprichard: hey, sorry but I'm still gonna beat you
2014-02-10 11:25:43 - elishaprichard: No,I am going to beat you!!!!!!!!!!!!!
2014-02-10 11:29:07 - jakobprichard: what? I don't understand, just look at my troops, oh...wait I'm so dead
2014-02-10 11:38:24 - zionprichard: you are so ded
2014-02-11 03:07:04 - zionprichard: god is awesome
2014-02-11 07:30:08 - davidprichard: Yes he is Zion...God is good!
2014-02-11 08:18:53 - elishaprichard: I agree!!!!!!!
2014-02-11 08:19:41 - elishaprichard: Zion you spelled dead wrong,you spelled it ded.
2014-02-11 08:25:07 - davidprichard: Elisha, you don't need to nitpick with your little brother.
2014-02-12 07:24:11 - zionprichard: elisha you are so awesome!
In fact, based on their names (Elisha, Jakob, Zion, David) and the chat, I'm going to venture a guess that these guys are all home-schooled. =)
And what do they gain in playing two-team doubs games vs. each other?Game 14195441
2014-03-25 01:56:33 - jakobprichard: i freaking HATE it when i get stuck in a game with THIS bad of a teamate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! well HOPEFULLY he is not as bad as his badge shows.
2014-03-25 01:59:38 - jakobprichard: im sorry euanferguesson, i was just mad that the other team had beter ratings than us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Some people play CC to play games against each other and have fun. You have to have something more than similar-sounding names to accuse someone of secret diplomacy and being multis.
Although there is this: Game 14344181
2014-04-27 23:23:10 - jakobprichard: Beanbones, i cleared a path for you to move to Oceania unless you want to battle it out for South America.
2014-04-27 23:52:25 - Beanbones: How come you guys started with 10 more troops than us? What?
2014-04-27 23:57:05 - Beanbones: Oh, its this frewe style stuff. My team has to start with 30 less troops and has to go last. Please don't invite me to free style games anymore. It is a broken mode that isn't fair.
2014-04-27 23:57:44 - Beanbones: You guys just happen to do your turn forst so you just win because of it.
2014-04-27 23:58:00 - Beanbones: *first
2014-04-28 00:16:46 - davidprichard: Dang Beanbones, I thought you'd take his offer on Oceania rather than committ suicide right off the bat in the game. Also, btw...we didn't get more troops. Elisha and I each gave our troops all to Jakob as a deterent for you to want to try and fight....
2014-04-28 00:18:28 - davidprichard: ...for South America. But I guess you didn't take the deterent! lol!
2014-04-28 07:39:50 - Beanbones: David, the game was done the first round. Please don't invite me to these freestyle games cause i don't like this coordinated abuse to take cheap unfair wins.
2014-04-28 07:44:16 - Beanbones: What did you expect me to do? Loose half my troops traveling to a new continent where I wouldn't even beable to get a bonus greater than 2 so you guys could pull in another 40+ troops in bonuses the next round?
2014-04-28 07:46:48 - Beanbones: Since your whole team got to go before us it destroyed our starting troop counts. This mode has nothing to do with skill. The win goes to whoever can sit at the computer the longest and game the system. Enjoy your win.
2014-04-28 10:25:27 - davidprichard: We certainly won't invite you to anymore freestyle games. Btw...I've won many games where I have relocated to another continent because I and another opponent both placed all our troops in the same continent. I've chosen that's better than putting...
2014-04-28 10:26:48 - davidprichard: both me and the opponent out of the game right off the bat by battling it out. But I understand also why you may not have wanted to do that. Just want to point out that it's not a bad tachnic to relocate. It's treated me very well many times.
2014-04-28 12:32:03 - Beanbones: It didn't matter what I did this game. The mere fact that you whole team can take their turn before ours and did so ensured our defeat. That kind of insane advantage is utterly rediculous.
2014-04-28 20:56:01 - davidprichard: Ok Beanbones, if you say so.
It looks like they're using the same computer here. I wouldn't play any freestyle trips games against them, that's for sure. (I guess it's the same as a team getting together online to play their turn together, but these guys have a definite advantage. This looks like one of their only freestyle team games they've played together.)
